DemoWatch

Year / 2015 User / Join Us Get Involved Developers / Meet our Team

DemoWatch is a mobile and internet application, created by Ushahidi, allowing anyone observing a protest event to send GoodlyLabs research-grade data about what is happening. News media reports of demonstrations are not perfectly reliable, comprehensive, or trusted. But data gathered and verified through DemoWatch can supplement news media data to ensure that scientists studying protester and police interactions (like those working on the DecidingForce project) have all the data they need to understand the on-the-ground dynamics that lead to violence in some cases and peaceful negotiation in others.
